A Hotel Near Disney World Is Getting Some MAJOR Changes

Although there are a lot of benefits for Disney World visitors to stay on Disney property, sometimes it just might make more sense to stay elsewhere.

Some visitors prefer to stay in the Disney Springs area (and there are certainly a lot of hotels to choose from there), while others choose to stay a little further off-property. For those who stay at the Waldorf Astoria, though, some BIG changes are coming that hotel’s way.

The Waldorf Astoria Orlando recently just built a new event space, the Central Park Ballroom, but now they’re following that up with a “reimagination of the rest of Waldorf Astoria Orlando starting May 2023.” This will be the largest update to the property yet and will cover pretty much every aspect of the hotel with work to be completed by December 2023.

From May to mid-June, the lobby will be “enhanced for a bright and airy new look.” While that’s going on, an alternative check-in location will be offered to guests. After that, from late June to August,  Peacock Alley will be getting an upgrade — during that time, hotel guests can dine at Sir Harry’s, which will open as The Croissant Bar for breakfast, and feature small bites and cocktails in the afternoon. Dinner will be served at Oscar’s Brasserie.

The golf course at the resort will also close for maintenance from May to November — while it’s closed, nine holes will remain available to play. The Waldorf Astoria Spa will be renovated from August through September — during that time, guests will be able to indulge in spa services in an alternative space.

Finally, Bull & Bear will be “reimagined into a more elegant fine dining destination” from mid-August through September. However, guests will still be able to have dinner at Oscar’s Brasserie.

During this time, the hotel will remain openwith its popular offerings served in alternative venues, while making sure the impact on our guests’ experience remains very minimal.” The hotel did note, though, that the estimated start and finish dates for each project could change.

So if you happen to be staying there during that time, be sure to be prepared for these changes.

  1. I hope the renovated Peacock Alley will resume their splendid Afternoon Tea service. It was discontinued after Covid hit, and it has yet to return. But, oh my, how elegant it was; and how pampered I always felt with their exceptionally solicitous service. To the Waldorf management: PLEASE BRING YOUR AFTERNOON TEA BACK!!
